Master quality tantric kapala.  Bowl is pure Himalayan crystal.  Handcarved metal (silver/nickel composite) surroundings are a wonder of human craftsmanship.  The carvings and many diverse semi-precious stones make this a phenomenal piece of art.


This is the second one I have acquired of this quality and makeup.  The first has sold and I did not think I would find another…. ever.


Created in the Kathmandu Valley where Newar skilled carvers and craftsman have produced metalwork like this for centuries.  This piece was found in a private home (estate).  This piece is AT LEAST from the 1930s.  It comes in 4 parts.


Rare?  Try to find this quality for less than $5,500 USD.  The religious and aesthetic value is extremely high.


For the Very Serious Collector.


This RARE piece has SOLD.  Thank you C.R. !
